The following message was reported in the console:

"dyld: /Applications/StartR.app/RAqua.app/Contents/MacOS/RAqua can't open
library: /usr/local/lib/libreadline.4.3.dylib  (No such file or directory, errno
= 2)"

1. I have tried reinstalling R 2.0.1 several times but this does not fix the
problem. I also used the disk utility
    to repair permissions but this did not solve the problem.

2.  Also, R 2.0.1 did RUN just after I first intalled it. However, it would not
run the next time I attempted to   
     lauch it (and the message above was written to the console).
